How do we know what "drugs" do and don't mean? What stops us from giving drugs new meanings? What other positions on drugs were available, but are now lost to us? Lawrence Driscoll's examination of the meaning of drugs from the Victorians to the new millennium quotes historical and current voices whose positions on drugs are at variance with truths in the year 2000. Offering an historical counter-memory, Driscoll reveals that other positions on drugs are available: positions which expose our own constructions of drugs as limited. From Aristotle to "Trainspotting", from "Just Say No" to "Just Do It", this book offers a reading of the messages our society sends about drugs.
